Alice and Jasper were always my favourites. Wait what.
I don’t object to Bella getting her time overall, but Eclipse the movie needed about 95% more Jasper and Rosalie flashback scenes. Also 100% less wig. #scientificassessment #teamjasper5ever
I seem to recall Stephenie Meyer saying that she wouldn’t ever write a Carlisle book going into all that back story because then she’d have to research the 17th century and so on. Which, I mean—if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t think that sounds like the most fun thing ever, then no, definitely don’t do it.Source: losttothefandoms

"Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer has the blockbuster book and film franchise to thank for her success and reported $125 million fortune.
But she isn’t necessarily happy with it.
"I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be," Meyer told Variety of the super successful book and film series. “I get further away every day."
But “Twilight” fans shouldn’t go crying into their pillows just yet, as Meyer says she hasn’t completely ruled out writing another installment of the popular vampire series.
“What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died,” she says, adding, “I’m interested in spending time in other worlds.”
1) Fair enough.
2) So… how’s the fandom taking this?
3) I guess this means I’ll never get to finish the Midnight Sun recap. :( :( :(

[TW: Sexual Assault, rape culture, victim blaming]
His lips crushed mine, stopping my protest. He kissed me angrily, roughly, his other hand gripping tight around the back of my neck, making escape impossible. I shoved against his chest with all my strength, but he didn’t even seem to notice. His mouth was soft, despite the anger, his lips molding to mine in a warm, unfamiliar way.
I grabbed at his face, trying to push it away, failing again. He seemed to notice this time, though, and it aggravated him. His lips forced mine open, and I could feel his hot breath in my mouth.
Acting on instinct, I let my hands drop to my side, and shut down. I opened my eyes and didn’t fight, didn’t feel… just waited for him to stop."
Twilight: Eclipse p. 331 (Bella and Jacob’s first kiss)
This is rape culture.
Young women are taught to think of this passage - which describes sexual assault - as erotic. Young men are taught to force their will on young women, regardless of any (non)verbal cues, because sex is conquest and women are objects - not something to be done between two consenting individuals because it’s pleasurable for both people.
The most frightening thing about this excerpt is that many survivors of sexual assault who have disclosed to me describe stories that sound exactly like this one.
tumblr user clockward submitted this to us. read at your leisure.
The lines before that:
He still had my chin—his fingers holding too tight, till it hurt—and I saw the resolve form abruptly in his eyes.
“N—-” I started to object, but it was too late.
And after he assaulted her she punched him in the face but due to his “super human strength” she broke her hand, said “Don’t touche me!” and then:
“Just let me drive you home,” Jacob insisted. Unbelievably, he had the nerve to wrap his arm around my waist.
I jerked away from him.
When he got in the driver’s side, he was whistling.
AND THEN while he was driving:
“…There is so much I can give you that he can’t. I’ll bet he couldn’t even kiss you like that—-because he would hurt you. I would never, never hurt you, Bella.”
I held up my injured hand.
He sighed. “That wasn’t my fault. You should have known better.”
He grinned over at me. “You kissed me back.”
I gasped, unthinkingly balling my hands up into fists again, hissing when my broken hand reacted.
“Are you okay?” he asked.
“I did not.”
“I think I can tell the difference.”
“Obviously you can’t——that was not kissing back, that was trying to get you the hell off me, you idiot.”
He laughed a low, throaty laugh. “Touchy. Almost overly defensive, I would say.
I took a deep breath. There was no point in arguing with him; he would twist anything I said.
Then when she gets home, to where her father, Charlie, the police officer, is:
“Why did she hit you?”
“Because I kissed her,” Jacob said, unashamed.
“Good for you, kid,” Charlie congratulated him.
I didn’t read the citation first. I read the quote. I thought I was reading a woman’s account of how she was about to be raped, not a fucking passage from a romance novel.
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST.
still having this argument with people tho
it is this passage that people (rightfully) hate twilight
everyone knows that edward himself isn’t much better
There are bitches who swear this entire pile of tripe passing for young adult literature is the ideal romance.
And the entire series is like this. I didn’t just “jump” on the Twilight-hating bandwagon because I thought it was cool. The minute I heard the plot I knew it was going to be rage-inducing. I gave the books a chance and lo and behold I was fucking right.
ETA: Uh. That moment when you realize you hit “post” instead of “draft.”
All I was going to say, though, was that I’ve been trying to tell y’all this for years. This is why the third book is the one I wanted to throw across the room, except I couldn’t, because it was an e-book I was reading on my computer and computer was a desktop and it was really heavy.
